Tofu party

My title today is a reference from another blog that I love to read (I think I'm in love with the blog names): Tofu Party! Last week we cooked a lot of meals using tofu and it made me remember how I love to eat tofu. I know many people that hate tofu and I can understand, when it's not well done it tastes like nothing. But there are some amazing recipes using tofu and make your own tofu party.

I'll post about 3 recipes (I don't have the quantities for them so they won't be the recipes, just some ideas):

* Penne with white tofu sauce: I don't know why but I can't eat pasta almost everyday anymore. I was used to it but for the last weeks I just cannot. But I could eat this one. The only difference was the sauce (I chose penne for the pasta but you can use your favorite one). To make the white sauce I used vegetable oil (less than one teaspoon, just to fry the garlic and onions), sliced garlic, onions, vegetable stock cube, soy cream (Provamel) and scrambled tofu (it was the first time that we bought the organic one from Clear Spot ant it's delicious). Add the oil, garlic and onions and cook for 2 minutes, just to let them "blonding". Add the stock cube (with a splash of water), the tofu and let it cook for another 2 or 3 minutes. Add the soy cream. Another minute and it's done. Add splashes of water if you think it's too much concentrated.

* Basic scrambled tofu: for this I used a lot of garlic and onion (one thing that I really love in Brazilian cuisine is that we use them for basically everything!). Fry them for 2 minutes. Add the scrambled tofu (if you prefer you can use some tofu big pieces too) and let it fry for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add one teaspoon of turmeric and mix to incorporate and cook for more 2 or 3 minutes. We ate it with rice and beans and roasted potatoes.

* Zucchini and mushrooms frittata, my favourite one, inspired at the new book of Isa Chandra, Vegan Brunch. We used the "Curried Cauliflower Frittata" recipe but instead of the cauliflower we used zucchini and mushrooms. It was so delicious. Everybody must have this cook book.
